Cal State L.A. Doesn’t Want Us Teaching Sex Ed on Campus

0

by Kate M.

sex-toys-r-us

Here’s what happened:

Cal State L.A.’s Gender and Sexuality Resource Center asked us to partner with them for an educational event called Sex Toys R Us, which would have taken place on February 11th. One of our sex educators would have given a workshop on sex-positivity, eroticizing safe practices and the sexual health and pleasure applications of sex toys. Since it would have been an adult event, the student organizer would have been checking IDs at the door. 

Unfortunately, when one eighteen-year-old student brought home a flyer for the event, her mother contacted CBS2 about it, calling it “OUTRAGEOUS.” (Yes, in all caps.) When CBS2 called Cal State with questions about the event, university administrators decided to cancel it. You can watch CBS2′s judgy news story here; it has everything but literal pearl-clutching.

Now, a group of Cal State students is organizing a Sex-Positivity Rally at the time the event would have taken place. Says the Facebook event page:

“This is not just a sexuality issue, it is an issue of gender, race, it is a class…this is a feminist issue. As people of color, as queer, trans students, it is a revolutionary act to accept our own bodies, to have safe sex, to educated ourselves, to be sex-positive…especially in a culture that tells us that people of color, queer people, trans people, and marginalized communities are not worthy of self-love/care.”

We agree. There is no reason why adult students should by denied sex education on campus, even if the occasional parent doesn’t like it. In fact, we think this person said it best:
